Good atmosphere, good price, ordering is a little confused, food is average on both flavour and presentation.

Utterly average for the price. The pizza was basic and used the cheapest ingredients possible (bearable when hungry and drowned in hot sauce). My wife's meal was equally average and unappealing. The staff at the very least were friendly and the venue is fine enough....More

My partner and I went here for dinner on our holiday and the first time my food came out with the wrong sauce all over it (pepper) on a salmon. I ordered garlic butter with my partner ordering the pepper for his steak. However he...More

Chamois was my go-to restaurant in Mount Cook Village. I visited it twice for dinner and loved it! The restaurant is popular with travellers and locals alike. I tried Fish & Chips (which were decent) and Pizza (which was amazing). Food items there were reasonably...More
